Never Enough Wool
Ah, June. Summer is here, with all its attendant
joys. Sunshine, gardening, sailing,
bike riding, gardening. Let’s not
forget all the quiet times in the morning and evening when those little summer
projects are a joy in the hand. Socks
and dish cloths make great summer projects – small and portable.
Speaking of socks
reminds me of Holiday Knitting. My
family “requires” hand-knit socks every year, as does Barb’s family. This means that summer is a fabulous time to
start working on them – you can be done by the time the holiday arrives. We have a nice selection of sock yarns and
patterns here at the store as well.
Remember the Queensland
Sugar Rush from last summer?
It’s back, and we scored a new colour or two. This is a beautiful yarn to work with and a delight to wear. Need something delightful for a wee
baby? Look no further!
June is also the month
for a YARN CRAWL! Visit one or more of
the five participating shops (Never Enough Wool, On the Lamb, Wool Queen, Wool
on William, Soper Creek and Myrtle Station Wool) for great times, sales and fun. The big day is Saturday, June 21st,
beginning at 10:00 am, and running until the last store closes (around 5:00
Don’t forget to let
Barb and Carol know about your finished objects. We are still counting until August 31, to see how many projects
our community will finish. Right now
(May 30th), we are at 1,118.
The goal is 2,500 – and the prize?
Carol and Barb in a bathtub of wool on the cover of the 2015 N.E.W.
Knit in Public will be celebrated Saturday, June 14th,
here at the store. We’ll have a
pot-luck dinner (always good food!) and great conversation. Weather permitting, we’ll move to a local
park/picnic area, but let’s not tempt the weather people too early.
Finally, many members
of our community participated in a surprise “grandma” baby shower for Carol
last summer. This summer, August 17th
to be precise, Carol’s son, daughter-in-law and grandbaby will be hosting an
open house to celebrate Thales’ first
birthday. The event is at the Prince
Albert Community Hall, from 2-4:00 pm.
Please let the store know if you plan to attend. We’d hate to run short on goodies!
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for
your class before class time. Class
times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00
pm. Other times may be arranged to
suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space
Booties – not just for
kids! This unique crochet slipper
features an interesting texture around the top, and is absolutely adorable
worked in Gradient from Schoppel, or Monsoon from James Brett. Counting and gauge are important, so Barb
will be a tough taskmaster. These would
be awesome holiday gifts for everyone on your list! Class starts Thursday, June 5, at 1:00 pm or 7:00 pm. Cost is $20 plus materials.
Cabled Vest – designed by Debbie Bliss, and frequently
worn by Carol. Join us as we work
through the various cables in this vest with the result a stunning vest that
can be worn as a layer, or as an individual piece. Cost is $20 plus materials, and we will be starting June 3.
Great American Aran
Afghan – This project will
generally be meeting on the third Sunday of each month, providing there are no
holidays on the specified weekend. In
deference to Father’s Day on June 15, we will be meeting on June 22, from
1-3:00 pm to work on our squares.
Entrelac Jacket – One of our customers brought in the book Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale,
and we spotted the beautiful Edwardian
Cardigan on page 104. Carol and Barb
are still working on their cardigans, and welcome anyone else who wants to play
along. It’s never too late for
Building Blocks – Michelle Hunter has created an afghan
comprised of knitted squares, each designed to build your skills with needles,
stitching, and assembly. Our current
class has just reached the half-way point as of April, and the students are
enjoying it immensely. This month we
will meet on Sundays, June 8 and 22nd. Class is currently filled – leave your name if you are interested
and we will schedule a second series of classes.
Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again! An afghan worked in multi-coloured
techniques to expand your knitting horizons.
Classes will begin later in the fall, so be sure to let us know if you
